Sorry, I added the pacserve user in haste. Today's update uses systemd.sysusers to add the user and group instead. The update should work if you stop the pacserve service first but manual intervention may be required. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I now see pacserve as user in sddm. uid=1002(pacserve) gid=1000(pacserve) groups=1000(pacserve)

Shouldn't uid be smaller than 1000?

Shouldn't the pacserve user and group be created as system ones, with (useradd|groupadd) -r …?

How does it directly depend on polkit?

archusr commented on 2017-04-02 19:35

Dependency polkit appears to be missing.

The backend is in the python3-threaded_servers package.

@lmat: The source array in the PKGBUILD contains the URLs, there is even a link on this page just above the "Add Comment" field.

I'm looking for the source of pacserve. There is a file referred to in the pkgbuild, pacserve-2016.tar.xz, but it doesn't appear to have the server source. Perhaps I'm overlooking something in that bundle?

@dangersalad: If it happens with python-3.5, this is to be expected since python3-threaded_servers still has its files under /usr/lib/python-3.4/
As python-3.5 has left testing only today, give Xyne some time to update his packages...
